All Around: Lotus Garden Hotel

What I can say about this Hotel? It is a small hotel who had only 6 floors. But the room are clean, looks new, good service, friendly worker, and the most of all affordable price for 1 night. Near of Robinson Mall and right on the place where you can have a night life. Sleeping for 1 night here is uhmmm had really a peaceful dream. Ha ha ha, but for that? I will try to stay at the other hotel to compare which the nicest one and which more affordable.

They held wedding ceremony here and they have pool table,near of Malls..

Staying with Filipinos

If you visit remote islands or hike through mountains off the beaten track, you will be unlikely to find any commercial accomodation at all.
In these cases, you can almost certainly count on Filipino hospitality though. In case no one invites you to stay with them spontenously, you should ask for the local mayor or barangay captain who will invariably sort something out for you.
Please make sure that you don't abuse this hospitality, and don't forget to contribute to your keep. Most Filipinos would feel uncomfortable asking you to pay money for your stay, but you should certainly offer a small amount discretely to the lady of the house upon departure - say it is your contribution to kitchen expenses, as would be within your own family! ;-)
Be aware that staying in a local village will mean that you must sacrifice your privacy, and be ready to put up with local standards of accomodation or food. Filipinos will probably be worried that their "poor" house and food is not suitable for you, so please make things only easier for them by not complaining and asking for special meals and services!

Accomodation in the Philippines

Hotels in the Philippines tend to be easy to find in all urban areas, although small towns may only have basic lodges.
Standards are usually good, even the cheapest digs won't be dirty and bug-infested as they might be in some other Asian countries.
Prices are somewhat higher than in Thailand or Indonesia, but still cheap by international standards.

As there are few backpackers, beach resorts here usually cater to trendy locals, foreign divers or - let's admit - sex-tourists.
This means that the standards are higher than in many other parts of South-East Asia, but so are the prices.
Cheap beach huts only exists on a few places.

Really backpacker-oriented budget guesthouses are mostly to be found in Sagada, Banaue and Batad in the Cordillera. These will still be clean and friendly, but very cheap by any standards.

Inter Continental: They Know What It Takes

It was an awesome night staying here you probably had a great night with nice buffet for dinner and breakfast. Workers really assist you for everything and they have a shopping area inside of the hotel which every stuff is unique from clothes to things.. however, if you like to rent a car they can give you right on!

As like other hotels they all have good facilities, and if we're talking about near of shopping malls? this hotel was surrounded by big malls in Manila. Sm, Ayala Center, Rustans, Greenbelt and etc.

Boat Station Three: Backpacking in Boracay

If you're looking for a budget place to stay head down to Boat Station Three (just turn right when you get off the boat) Shop around and don't follow the ladies that accost you when you arrive. Their service is not for free as you end up paying their commission with a higher price for the room you get.

I stayed at a place called LM Beach Resort which offers very basic acommodation but that's what I was looking for and the price was reasonable.

Sugar Beach: Sipalay, Negros-Bermuda Beach resort

There are not too many people on Sugar beach and no night life except for the hotel bars. Inevitably all the guests have the opportunity to meet each other in the evening ..talking sessions among beers and wine. Or arrange a dinner out, that is in the hotel ...next door. However the atmosphere is great !
Bermuda Resort is owned by a wonderful couple Francis and Zenaide who do their best to make you happy. If you show up and it's fully booked they let you stay in the nice straw tipis for free! The food is generous and delicious. There are a lot of international and local dishes in the menu and every now and then they prepare a traditional dinner for you and your friends or whatever you wish if you order in advance .
The cottages are spacious and clean, with the most expensive ones in the front, with a veranda and airconditioning. The ones at the back are also airy and comfortable while they are cheaper for the low budgets.
They organise a lot of activities for you as diving , snorkeling, trekking, Kayaking and sailing. The bar and restaurant are nice and are offered for romantic dinners after a sunset drink on the beach !!!
A billiard table and satellite TV are available, too.
I made many friends and had a perfect time on this sweet beach...

The cheapest cottage for 2 people is 14$US (600 P$) and goes up to 31$US (1400P$) for 2 or 4 people.

Pensione del Carmen! - Ilo-ilo, Panay

Carmen is a very elegant lady who runs the pension very efficiently. Her polite presence and gracious appearance, the family pictures on the walls and the history of the mansion gives the place a respectable atmosphere. Her free breakfasts are generous and tasty. The spacious, clean, rooms are built around a central internal patio in the two storey house. They have spotless hot-watered bathrooms, airconditioning and cable TV. Both floors have a large balcony with a wonderful river view. Prices are 650 for singles and about 1000 for doubles. There are nice restaurants and beer-places on the river side nearby and the hotel kitchen can also be used by the guests .

Nuts Huts- Bohol

Chris and Rita are a wonderful couple from Belgium who have created this paradise in the middle of the jungle on the bank of Loboc River. The dark turquoise river water is very inviting and the jungle atmosphere is perfect for those who like the sounds and feeling of pure nature. The restaurant is a gathering point for meeting friends or taking a nap on a hammock. It's a large balcony wonderfully built over the river bank. The view is majestic! Food is very good. There is a sauna and massage available, book exchange and a super friendly attitude!
I happened to be there on New Year's Eve and Chris and Rita had arranged for a tasty traditional banquet followed by a great party. We danced to the music played by locals and then we were transferred to Loboc by boat! We attended the mass in the famous old church and listened to Christmas carols by the angelic voices of young children! The birth of the new year found us kissing and embracing on Loboc river in a wonderful moonlight.
I had the last hut next to the river so I was delighted just to relax on the balcony reading a book and watching the cruise boats passing by and the guides showing me as an example of a ...very happy tourist!! It was true!! By the way my hut was "the Beach" - as huts have film titles for names. The location is very convenient for Chocolate hills and the Tarsier Foundation.
Call before you go because it's usually full.
Prices are excellent. I paid less than 350/day (2007) for my stay in a hut by myself and I think it's 600 for 2 persons and 200 for dorm beds.. If you stay for 3 days the fourth day is free!
More info here:Nuts Huts

More photos in Travelogue "New year's Eve at "Nuts Huts"-Loboc

Directions:From Tagbilaran take the regular bus. Tell the driver to drop you off at Sarimanok pumpboat company in Loboc (on the river). Then it's a 10 minute ride to the hotel. There is also a dirt road further on the road leading to the hotel but it's very bumpy and not very convenient if you carry all your luggage.
